About Us


 

Hey there friend! We are so thrilled that you are here in our little corner shop in the huge universe of the Internet! We would love to tell you a little bit about who we are and our boutique!

Our Mission

Our mission at Seeds and Sycamores is to help women find high quality clothing items that are beautiful, fashionable, and modest. We would love to help you find that perfect church dress! You see, we don’t believe it’s one or the other. We know you can build a wardrobe that brings glory to God and still feel relevant. We always encourage you to reach to for the beauty that spills out of a pure heart.

Big Dreams + Brave Hearts

Our shop name,Seeds and Sycamores, is inspired by a parable Jesus told his disciples and a story of a special encounter with Jesus we read about in the Bible. This is the foundation for what our mission is all about.

Seeds represents the mustard seed parable, that ever elusive parable where Jesus tells his disciples that even with a little tiny bit of faith, with God you can move mountains. What an amazing promise! This boutique is built on that little bit of faith that with God, we can build this business. And we know so many of the women who shop here have dreams too! And we want you to know that we are walking through those with you! God has planted a big dream in you too and with His help, we know you will see that with Him impossible becomes possible.

The Sycamores part of our name is inspired by the story of Zaccheus climbing in the sycamore tree because he wanted to see Jesus.So many times, we settle for just a glimpse of Jesus amidst the noise of the world. We want to have a heart like Zaccheus who, despite what everyone else was doing and even at the risk of calling attention to his shortcomings, climbed the tree for a clearer view of His Savior! What a brave heart!

The Girls

“So, you want to go the mall sometime.” It’s funny how just the most simple statement can begin a friendship! We moved to The Woodlands in 2008, within 1 day of each other and began going to the same church. We were both new, loved to shop and were school teachers, and our personalities just click!

One day, we were talking during a playdate and decided to make Seeds and Sycamores happen. And now here we are!
